obama says he's not going to negotiate on this. he wants a clean bill, raise the debt ceiling, no other issues on the table, no strings attached. just let me borrow more by october so i can pay the bills. that's the statement from president obama no negotiations. that's not going down very well on wall street. they look at this and say here we go again and the dow jones average will open about 120 points down in part because of that no negotiation position from the president. martha: we know from history republicans will come back and say they want to see spending cuts to pass this through. why do you think the president is so intractable on this issue? >> it's possible he thinks if there is a government shutdown over the debt ceiling issue then the president wins politically and the republicans as they have in the past lose politically so he's saying go ahead, shut it down. the market is concerned about the syrian situation and again about another debt crisis 50 days away. martha: there are oil concerns percolating in the market and we'll talk about those a couple minutes away. and a v

. >> meanwhile the "san francisco chronicle" reports many people uninformed about obama care are falling prey to scams. the scams can take the form of e-mails or phone calls from people pretending to be representatives of the federal government and even solicitors going door to door trying to sign people up for fake medical cards or seeking personal information. what do you think about what's going to happen this fall? >> oh. it's hard to predict. obviously with respect to the budget showdown i don't think the president is going to budge. i don't see why he will or would because this his signature legislation. if they're saying delay the thing for a year i doubt that he would do that. but, you know, the weekly radio address was very interesting in part because we're at this point right now where there is a, you know, sabotaging going on of the plan or an attempt. the biggest move is to get people to burn their obama care cards as if they exist but encourage young people not to sign up, avoid the exchanges as a way to make sure the overall bill is sabotaged. this is a very critical juncture an
